I am a tenured professor with membership in both the Faculty of Languages and Literature (Fak 13) and the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics (Fak 16, Zweitmitgliedschaft) at LMU Munich. I am a PI of the Munich Center for Machine Learning (MCML). I am interested in the intersection of natural language processing and machine learning.
I am the coordinator for the Masters in Computational Linguistics at LMU Munich from 2014 to present, but I am transitioning out of this role.
Contact about our Masters program: email@example.com, please write in German (it is a German-language program with a few classes taught in English)
Final complete application to Masters program: firstname.lastname@example.org
All other questions about the Masters including administrative requests (like credits or program change) MUST be addressed to email@example.com
